New York Speeding Ticket Information

If you received a New York speeding ticket, you are now facing points, fines and surcharges, potential DMV penalties, and also increased auto insurance.

How Much Does A Speeding Ticket Cost?

A speeding ticket in New York State costs between $45 and $600. For speeding 1 to 10 mph over the limit the rage is between $45 and $150. For speeding 11 mph to 30 mph, the range is $90 to $300. Finally, for speeding 31 mph or more, the range is $180 to $600.

Every New York speeding ticket carries a court fine, mandatory New York State surcharge and points on your driving record. If you are a repeat offender, the range of fines is significantly higher. The fines listed are for speeding tickets received anywhere in New York State except for the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island).

If you have questions call 1-888-434-0406 for a free consult.

Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee (DRA): If you receive 6 or more points as a result of violations that occurred within an 18 month period you will be subject to an additional fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment fee (DRA). When you reach 6 points you will be penalized $300. An additional $75 will be imposed for each point after the 6-point mark. This penalty is paid to DMV and is separate and in addition to the court fines associated with your ticket.

At 11 points the NY DMV will suspend your NY license or NY driving privileges (if you live out of state). Any points accumulated for violations which occur within a given 18-month period count towards suspension. If you have a CDL license or a Junior license, the penalties can be even more severe.

Speeding Tickets in NYC

drivers in New York CityThe Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) handles traffic tickets in all 5 Boroughs of NYC ( Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island). In the TVB the points are the same but the fine varies depending upon the nature of the violation. In addition, negotiating a settlement or reduction (known as a “plea bargain”) is not permitted (see below).  Read more about NYC Speeding Tickets

How Much Will My Auto Insurance Increase for a Speeding Ticket?

Speeding Ticket Example - New York
Speeding Ticket Example

Simply put, auto insurance is all about risk. You pay an auto insurance premium so that if you get into an auto accident your insurance provider will pay for the damage. An insurance underwriter’s primary role is to determine what your premium should be based on how likely they believe you are to get into an auto accident. The more traffic violations you have on your record, the greater the risk and the higher the premium. If you accumulate enough traffic tickets, your insurance company could even cancel your policy. Studies by sites such as InsuranceQuotes.com have concluded that your NY auto insurance premium can go up as much as 22% for a single speeding ticket.

Should I Fight My Speeding Ticket or Plead Guilty and Pay the Fine?

In most cases, it is NOT a good idea to plead guilty to the charge. Police officers and prosecutors want you to plead guilty to speeding charges because it makes their job easy. Pleading guilty means you give up your rights to a trial and you automatically have to pay fines, incur points on your license and pay higher auto insurance premiums. Instead of facing these consequences you can choose to plead not guilty and fight your ticket!

In many cases, an attorney can either get you a dismissal (all charges are dropped and without fines or penalties) or a reduction in fines and points. Here are some reasons why you should fight your speeding ticket:

  • Significant fines & surcharges
  • Points on your license
  • Increased auto insurance premiums
  • Possible license suspension or revocation
  • DMV Penalties (where applicable) i.e. NY Driver Responsibility Assessment
  • Loss of your employment (if a valid driver’s license or CDL is required)

Will a New York Speeding Ticket Affect Me if I Live in a Different State?

Out of state drivers are subject to the same fines and surcharges as a NY driver. If a driver fails to pay these fines, NY will suspend his or her NY driving privileges and that individual will be barred from driving in NY during that period of suspension or revocation. In addition, the suspension will be reported to the driver’s home state which can also trigger a license suspension from your state DMV.  In addition, many states will list out of state convictions (i.e. those that occurred in NY) and assess their own respective points and penalties.  Sharing of information between states can therefore result in increased auto insurance rates.  Thus, in most cases it is more advantageous to fight a New York speeding ticket even if the driver lives in a different state.

Call us at 1-888-434-0406 for a free consult.

Speeding Tickets in any Location Except NYC

If you received a speeding ticket in any location other than NYC, your ticket will be handled by a city, town or village court. The name and address of that court is listed at the bottom of the ticket (see example here). If you want to fight your ticket, you have to enter a plea of “Not Guilty” by filling out that portion of the ticket and mailing it to the court. The court will mail you a pre-trial conference notice on which to appear and discuss your case with the prosecutor to see if you can agree on a settlement. Note, a prosecutor is not required to offer you a deal and may offer you a less favorable deal if you are not represented by an attorney. Remember, attorneys (like the prosecutor) are skilled negotiators. You also have the right to reject any settlement you are offered and have a trial. The trial will most likely be held on a second or third court date (this means you will have to appear in court more than once). At the trial the police officer will present testimony to support his case. You have the right to question or “cross-examine” the officer. The judge will make a ruling of innocence or guilt. If you are found “not guilty” you will not be required to pay any fines and you won’t get points. If you are found guilty you will get the full amount of points and be required to pay a fine.

Speeding Tickets in NYC

In New York City the tribunal handling your ticket is called the Traffic Violations Bureau or “TVB” (except in a criminal case like DWI or reckless driving – those are handled by the criminal court). In the TVB there are no settlements or plea bargains so if you want to fight your ticket, the only way to do so is to have a trial. Trials are tricky business and best handled by an experienced attorney who knows how to ask the right questions and make the best legal arguments in your favor.

  1. I was driving in a 106 in 65 mph by buffalo with an expired drivers license but I have a renewed license and it wasn’t on me. I’m sure I wasn’t going that fast because i looked at my speed limit as I was passing by the trooper and it read 101. Still triple digits but 41 miles over and 36 miles over is a huge penalty difference. It’s my first time getting tickets and it’s gonna be an automatic suspension. How likely is it that I will win this case?

    1. Eric – Please provide the name of the court so I may advise accordingly. There are two court systems in NY – one of which allows for plea bargaining, the other does not.
      Due to the serious nature of these consequences (suspension, points, fines, and insurance implications), I suggest contesting this ticket irrespective of what court will ultimately be handling this ticket.

  2. Going 84 in a 55 full time student on break for work to get me out of debt need advice don’t see how I could contest in court

  3. Got tagged going 83 in a 65 with an hill decline to where I got lit up. Cruise was set to 75 but the uphill increase made my gears change and push the speed a little more. Unable to settle back down to normal cruise limit of 75. On my home from overnight shift at work. I do not fight these tickets but afraid of the hefty fine. Any advice would be great. Thank you.

    1. I suggest you contest this as this 4 point violation will likely impact insurance rates, and require the payment of court fines. Please be reminded that traveling but 1 mile over the speed limit is a 3 point violation.

  4. Hello, today I received a ticket on Sunrise Highway going 90 in a 55. This is my first ticket I’ve ever received. I know this ticket is costly, but what I’m more worried about is the points that will be added to my license. How should I pursue this ticket. What are the options for fighting it myself, and/or having a lawyer fight it for me?

    1. Mitchell – you are facing an 8 point ticket that carries fines of $693, and assessment fees of $450. Aside from the impact on insurance, this violation will bring you close to license suspension. I strongly suggest you contest this ticket by pleading not-guilty.

  5. My husband just got pulled over in New York for going 22 over the speed limit and he had to pay $180 on the spot or go to jail. Is that even legal? I mean, seeing as though people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. We live in Illinois. Please help me because I just dont see that being right.

  6. Hello I received a ticket for going 72 in a 55 on a 2 lane road. I was being tailgated by the person behind me and was hit with laser. I have 2 or 3 points already. What action should I persue. I know of a course caked alive at 25 that can often be taken to reduce impact on ones license. Is this a reasonable option for an offense of this speed?

    1. The ‘alive at 25’ course will not ‘delete’ points from your record. Rather, it potentially provide a credit before license suspension. As you have 2-3 points on your license already, adding 4 point will activate the driver responsbility assessment fee. Additionally, you will be required the pay the fine of $393, and incur substantial impacts to your insurance rates. If you would like to discuss this further, you may contact us for a free consultation at 888-434-0406.

  7. Hi. I received a ticket for going 39 in a school zone, where the speed limit is 25. This is my first ticket ever. Some people are advising me to hire a lawyer, others say to just pay the fine since i have to pay extra money for a lawyer anyways. Is it really such an extra expense? What ahould I do?

    1. Alieshaia – Whether you should hire an attorney is more than a comparison between the price of a lawyer and the total fine paid. Paying the fine will result in 4 points against your license, fines of $693, and a substantial increase in your insurance rates. Additionally, depending on the location of this offense, an attorney will be able to assist you in either obtaining a plea offer from the prosecutor, or conducting a trial on your behalf – both of which will likely not require your personal appearance.

  8. I received a ticket for 96 I a 65, I was pulled over with another gentleman who was ahead of me going fast than myself. The officer said he got me on radar going 96, as i passed the officer i looked abd waz going between 80 and 83mph. I also had my 2 year old in the car with me- I k ow I wasn’t going that fast and wouldn’t ever with my daughter in The car. I think he toom radar on the man in front of me and assumed because I was behi d him I was arou d the same speed. Fight it? I ha e never had any other Speeding or vehicle violations before either. Thank you-

    1. Kathy – I would advise you to contest this violation as this 8 point ticket will have a fine of $600, court fees of $93, and assessment fees of $450. Furthermore, speeding tickets increase insurance rates substantially. How best to go about contesting this ticket will depend on the location of the incident. You may contact us for a free consultation at 888-434-0406 if you wish to discuss further.

  9. I got a speeding ticket for doing 77 in a 55 on the I-495. I already have 7 points on my license. How should I contest this? My deposition makes me look like I plead guilty since it’s says I answered “no.” when asked if I had a legal reason for speeding.

    1. Eunice – As you are facing license suspension if found guilty, I strongly suggest that you contest this ticket. The statements made to the officer are quite common, and we have substantial experience dealing with such a case. It should be noted that you are likely before the jurisdiction of the traffic violations bureau, which does not allow for plea bargaining of any sort. Therefore, a trial must be conducted in order to contest this violation.

  10. Hi I received a ticket on route 13 in alpine ny doing 64 in a 55 just coming out of a double lane going downhill should I try to fight this and what would this ticket cost ?

    1. Josh – this 3 point ticket has a maximum penalty of $243. Were you intially charged with a hire offense? It appears that you may have been given a ‘roadside reduction,’ as officers rarely issue tickets for this rate of speed.

  11. Hi! I got a 1180D3 ticket for going 90mph in a 50mph on the Long Island Expressway trying to get home. I am very aware of the lumps i’ll have to take, but not sure if I should hire an attorney to reduce any cost/points. I am a PA resident who travels to NY a lot. I’ve postponed the ticket and right before the hearing, it was rescheduled again “Administrative by Office”.

    1. Victor – you are facing an 8 point ticket – 1 mile away from the 11 point ticket bracket. This ticket will result in fines of $688, along with a driver assessment fee of $450. The violation will transfer to PA for insurance purposes – thus significantly increase your rates. I suggest you contest this ticket to provide for a chance of the dismissal of these charges.

  12. Hello,
    I was caught driving 60 mph in a 25 area by Park police enforcement. I was driving in riverside dr between 125 & 135 st,Manhattan, an empty area where police know that people will be tempted to speed. This was my first speeding ticket. What I’m l risking, and how much do you charge for this ticket?

    Thank you.

  14. I received a ticket for going 74 in a 50 zone on the Clearview expressway (violation 1180(D)(2) Its my first speeding ticket and Ive had my license for 14years. Is it worth fighting the ticket? What are the possible outcomes of hiring a lawyer to fight the ticket? What are my chances of getting it dismissed?

    1. Erica – you are currently facing a 6 point violation that will carry a fine of $203, and an assessment fee of $300. Additionally, this ticket will likely increase your insurance rates. I therefore suggest that you contest this ticket.

  15. Ok so I screwed up like big time. I know I’m losing my license and paying at least $1500 but anyway I got 2 tickets both 23 mph over. I got 2 tickets for modified exhaust. A ticket for driving out of class. Bald tire ticket. A ticket for failure to keep right. A ticket for speeding but it wasn’t marked for what speed I did. A ticket for having no back reflector. 8 of the 9 tickets where on my motorcycle. And I have a junior license. I know I’m dumb. I got all these tickets in 3 different stops. Thanks

    1. Paul – due to the serious consequences that these tickets entail, I suggest you contact our office immediately at 888-434-0406 to discuss how best to handle these tickets.

  16. I live in NJ and drive about 60,000/year for my job in sales. I received a ticket for going 84 in a 65 in NY yesterday. I was trying to get away from a truck that seemed out of control since he kept speeding up and slowing down. He was also swerving. I figured he was probably texting. I’ve seen too many accidents so I went in the left lane to get in front of him, I didn’t want to stay behind in case he lost control. When I switched into the left lane, that’s when the trooper saw me and clocked my speed.

    Is there anyway to not go to court and get this citation reduced? It could affect my employment if I receive points on my license.

    1. Amber, while you will be able to contest this ticket, please note that speeding is a strict liability offense – thus eliminating any legal legal defense. It should be noted here that this is a 4 point violation, that will add 2 points to your NJ license. Additionally, this ticket will likely increase insurance rates, and require the payment of $393 in fines.

  17. I was stopped for doing 65 in a 40 zone, I had an 11 year old in the back with 2 other passengers over the age of 18. I was about to get on a state road where it would be 55. This is my first offense and I’ve only been driving for about a month.

    1. SI – you are currently facing a 6 point ticket that carries a fine of $393, along with a $300 assessment fee. Additionally, this speeding ticket will substantially increase your insurance rates. While we understand that roads rapidly change speed limits, speeding is a ‘strict liability’ offense – meaning there are no legal defenses that can be used. In order to provide further information, please provide the name of the court, along with any questions you may have.

  18. Hello
    My name is john and I received a ticket in nyc (riverside drive).
    I was going 43 at 25 mile zone. I see this is 4 points maximum of $ 300. Should I plead not guilty? If so, would they offer any settlement in nyc?

    thank you

    1. John – The total penalty for this ticket in NYC is $203. NYC is governed by the traffic violations bureau – a court system that does not provide for plea bargaining. However, you may still contest this ticket by presenting your case at trial.

  19. I received a speeding ticket 1180(d) for doing 58mph in a 45mph zone. I already have a 2 points from a previous 13 months prior for 89 in a 55. I already went to traffic school. I would like to know what I might be facing this time around if I plead not guilty. This was in the City of Tonawanda, NY. I am also 21yrs old.

    1. Austin – you are facing a 4 point ticket for this violation. Aside from the fines of $393 for this ticket, this violation will bring you to the 6 point threshhold for the driver responsibility assessment fee. I suggest contesting this ticket to avoid / mitigate these consequences.

  20. Received Speeding Ticket in 2003 in Town Of Poughkeepsie NY 12603. Exited Higher limit road onto side road which had limit reduced recently, cop was waiting by the 30 mph sign. Forgot about it until I found I can’t renew my Florida License until this is cleared up. I have been asked to sign a form with a plea, but have no idea of the fine I will have to pay if I plead guilty, or how it will impact my perfect driving record since I moved to Florida.

  21. I was exiting cold spring New York … It was about a month ago middle of summer school not in session nor were the lights flashing . I had just come off a light and a cop got me for 40/30 in a school zone … I find it hard to believe I broke 40 just 50 yards off of the light .. but I’ve never been to court before and I’m wondering what this is looking like .

    1. You are facing a 3 point ticket with a fine of $393. School zone violations are particularly important to fight due to their increased fine and likely increased insurance implications.

  22. I was stopped by police and charged for driving at 85 with 65 allowed in NY state. I am a tourist visiting USA and leaving next week. I gave my foreign (Armenian) license and passport. Should i plead guilty and pay the fine or not guilty (but cant attend court as will be outside of USA already). Do they treat tourists softer/less fines or opposite?

    1. Courts treat all individuals the same. Your country of origin is irrelevant in the eyes of the court. I do suggest resolving this ticket before leaving the states.

  23. Hello,
    My name is Zongyu Wang.

    I live in Pittsburgh, PA. Tonight when I drove to Buffalo, I got a speed ticket at I-90 E/B MPM 495, RIPLEY town of 0770, county Chautauqua.

    The speed limit is 65, I drove at 99 miles per hour as the officer told me.

    It is my first ticket.

    I am 27 years old. Should I hire an attorney to against the ticket.

    To be honest, I know I am guilty, and I would like to pay the ticket fines, but I don’t wanna get points to my license and increase my insurance.

    Please give me advices,

    Thanks

    1. While you are correct in that points will not transfer to PA, the violation itself will – likely causing an increase in your insurance rates. An officer is capable of issuing speeding tickets to multiple cars at the same time. Radar is not the only way that an officer can gauge speed.

  24. Hi,
    I pled not guilty to a ticket of going forty in a thirty five. I wanted to change my plea because I felt this wasn’t going to be high priced/points anyway. However, the prosecutor said no, that he will change the charge to leaving a vehicle unattended. I took the charge and when the judge asked if I was guilty of the lesser charge, I said guilty. Should I have pled not guilty? I was still charged 250 dollars anyway.

    1. Christine – please clarify what violation code you plead guilty to. The issue will be whether the violation you have plead guilty to carries with it any points.

  25. My friend recently was ticketed for speeding through work zone …69 in 55 zone. No points on license before this. How much would a ” normal” fine for this be. Last ticket 2011. No speeding offenses.

  26. I got a speeding ticket while driving from Virginia to Buffalo New York. I was driving on interstate highway I86. Ticket is for driving 84 miles in 65 miles zone. I would like to know if I decide to fight the fine, how much you will charge and what would be probability of success.

  27. My friend got a speeding ticket 97 in a 55 im only 18 my first ticket the officer told me to bring my father i guess cause the car is insured under my parents name. Do i have to bring them

    1. Please contact me at 888-434-0406 to clarify your question. Did you receive the ticket, or did a friend of yours. Irrespective of whom received the ticket, this violation is an 11 point ticket, that carries substantial implications – including fines, insurance increases, and license suspension.

  28. Got pulled over on I87 for 84 in a 65 but there are some circumstances that suggest the trooper’s claim is dubious. Based on his actions and statements I’m confident he wasn’t sure who he clocked and decided to go after the guy with out of state tags. I have no prior offenses. Haven’t been pulled over in more than 15 years. I have out of state tags, but I do live in NYC. Would like to discuss options.

  29. So i have court today at 630pm i pleaed not guilty in hopes to get it reduced the ticket claims i was going 82 in 65 but when the state trooper pulled me over he showed me the radar and it showed 81 was driving in Grand Island, Ny just wanted to see what fines i would be facing so i know how much to bring. it is also my only speeding tickt on record. other was over 7 years ago in Elmia Ny and was reduced after the schooling and a fine of $180.

  30. Hi there:

    I got a speeding ticket while driving from Ontario Canada to New York.

    The ticket is for driving at 95 miles in 65 miles zone.

  31. Hi I just got a speeding ticket for going 64 in a 35 in East Fishkill. This is my first ever ticket and I was wondering what sort of penalties I am facing and what could be avoided by hiring an attorney to defend me. Also, I have a class DJ license.

    1. James – you are facing a 6 point ticket that carries fines of $300, court fees of $93, and a $300 assessment fee. Additionally, this will substantially impact your insurance rates.

  32. I was pulled over for doing 64 in a 35 in east fishkill, this is my first ticket and I am wondering what I should do. Also, I have a trip planned to Florida before my court date, am I still going to be able to go on the trip or will I not be allowed to leave. Thanks for the help.

    1. James – this ticket should not prevent your traveling. Hiring an attorney will allow you to contest your ticket without a personal appearance.

  33. I got a ticket for a 1180D, going apparently 88 in a 65 mph on I-90W. The charge was based on officers “direct observation” and speed verified by “radar”. There is no amount listed on there, just a court appearance date and a place to plea guilty or not guilty. This is my first speeding ticket, no prior on my record besides an accident from 2 years ago. I live in MA and during the court date listed, I will be out of state for military training. What do I do?

  34. I received a speeding ticket in East Fishkill, for going 75 in a 55 zone. I noticed that it says that I needed to mail a plea of not guilty within 48 hours, does that mean that I either have to plead guilty by mail or take in the form with a plea of not guilty, in person?

    1. Mel – the court must have a response to your ticket by the date listed on the front of the ticket, listed as ‘respond or appear in person on or before.’

  35. I received a ticket for Speeding 91 in a 65 on I86, Town of Angelica court in Allegany County NY about an hour drive from my residence in Geneseo. Is it possible to get this reduced to the the 1-10 mph range or less or do they usually just go down one notch so to speak? I’m considering calling the Ada but also am afraid of having to make multiple appearances. Is there a good lawyer in that area?

  36. I got a speeding ticket in 2005 going through the town called Verona. I want to take care of the individual ticket but they are charging me for no license they were suspended was my second ticket. What should I do about this situation when I was living in another state at the time. Please let me know what to do!

    1. Tracy – if you would like further assistance, please contact us at 888-434-0406 to clarify the specific charges against you.

  37. Hi, I received a speeding ticket in Broome County. I am originally from MA, but am working in NY. I was wondering what penalties I could face. I was caught at 97 in 65, but I did not think I was going that fast. Regardless, I saw on one site that jail is a possibility. Does that happen? I have had my license for 8 years and have never done anything in which I am at fault. I was also wondering if it impacts my job.

    1. John – You are currently facing an 8 point violation that carries fines of $693, assessment fees of $450, and substantial impacts to your insurance rates. While jail is technically a possibility, we have rarely if ever seen this utilized. I can not speicificaly state how your job will view this violation, as that is at your employers discretion.

  38. I got pulled over on I390, in Wayland, town of, Steuben on the way to Nigagara falls from New Jersey.

    I was told that i was at 82 in 65 mph zone. Supporting deposition provided with Speeding (Gen 101).

    This is my first speeding ticket ( i had 8 points 4 years ago thou).

    Going to the court takes about 4 and half by car.

    Please recommend what to do.

    1. I suggest you contest this 4 point ticket, as it includes fines, points, and a substantial impact on insurance rates. Hiring an attorney will allow you to contest your ticket without personally appearing in court

  39. Hi, I was just stopped in Tompkins County, NY going 84 in a 55. (At night, no other cars on the road, which was one lane) I thought I was still in a 65 zone and told the cop that my cruise control was set at 70. He included that in the deposition, which he says will help me out. He also encouraged me to go to court and reassured me that the judge is kind and often understanding. I’m going to the town court next week about the ticket. Any advice?? I’m from out of state, on my parents insurance, and a broke college kid! I was in the last 30 mins of my 6 hour drive and had been coming from a funeral (so it was quite a rough day!)

    1. While you can plea on your behalf we would advise retaining counsel to obtain the best result. Youa re facing serious points and impact to your parents insurance

  40. I got caught going 83 mph in a 55 mph highway in Suffolk. Expired inspection and couldn’t find my insuranse card. What can i do.

    1. This court system does allow for plea bargaining, so you may be able to obtain a reduction in your fines and penalties if handled properly

  41. I got Uniform ticket near Brewster NY for speeding at 85 in the zone of 55. I am not a resindent of New york. I have a clean driving history. I was overtaking the truck which was driving too recklessly and before i overtook him, the truck was going to trash me.couple of times I felt danger on my life behind the truck as it was driving in both the lanes. I decided to overtook and i got the ticket. The officer did not gave any evidence or deposition. The speed is measure on RADAR. What should i do?

    1. I suggest you contest this tickert to mitigate the consequences of this 6 point violation. As speeding is a strict liability offense, there is no actual defense to speeding – other than to assert that the officer is unable to meet their burden of proof. We need more specific information about your ticket to provide you with further information. You may reach us at 888-434-0406.

  42. I got pulled over today in Woodbury, NY by a state trooper. I was given a speeding ticket for going 81 in a 65. I’ve never had a traffic ticket before. If I plead not guilty is there a good chance of getting my ticket reduced? I’d also like to add I’m from upstate New York, so kind of far away.

    1. This court does allow for plea bargaining. However, what offer is ultimiately given and approved depends on numerous factors.

  43. I’m 22 y/o from Ohio and got pulled over on I-90 in Oneida County going 96 in a 65. Unfortunately I was trying to play ball with the Trooper in the hopes that he might reduce the speed just a little, so when he asked me “how fast do you think you were going”, I replied “probably around 90”. and instead of giving me any kind of break he actually quoted me wrong on the ticket writing that I just simply told him “90” as a matter of fact. What are my options 🙁

    1. You are facing a 6 point ticket that includes fines of $393, assessment fees of $300, and a significant impact on your insurance rates. I strongly suggest you contest this ticket to avoid / mitigate these consequences.

  44. Hi got a ticket on 490 going to Canada from Rochester, doing 93mph in a 65mph zone, no previous offences, and first ticket ever, I was given a supporting deposition and officer did not give me any further information

  45. I am an Ontario, Canada resident. While travelling back from a weekend in Lancaster , I got stopped in Perry, NY for what the officer said I was doing 59 in a 40. First I thought I was in a 45 zone and when I noticed him was going just around 52 and do not think I would have been going much faster then that but not sure when he clocked me. Also on the ticket he wrote down that I was driving a red 2008 Dodge Caravan but I was driving a black and orange 2006 Ford Econoline. Trying to figure out if a 2hr drive to make a court appearance is the smart thing to do?

    1. You are facing a 4 point ticket – that will transfer to Ontario. The penalty for such an offense is $393, along with a substantial impact on your insurance rates. If you are interested in contesting this ticket, we can fight it on your behalf without your required appearance. You may reach us at 888-434-0406 for a free consultation.

  46. I got a speeding ticket going 103 on a 35 on ocean Parkway in Nassau County. Also got a ticket for unauthorized speed contest, reckless driving and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. My license is from Florida and I showed the officer that I had paid the fine from previous ticket he blew me off and said to bring it to court.

    1. Due to the severe consequences of this offense (11 points, $693 penalty, $675 assessment fees, and license suspension), I suggest you contact us immediately to discuss your case. You may reach us at 888-434-0406 for a free consultation.

  47. My 21yo son who is licensed in Maine was stopped on I90 between Rochester and Syracuse going 82 in a 65. He’s got no previous violations and is a student at RIT interning in Syracuse. Any thoughts on what he should do? I’m in Maine, myself.

    1. I suggest your son contest this 4 point ticket as the violation will likely impact his insurance rates. Hiring an attorney will allow you to fight the ticket without making a personal appearance.

  48. Hi, I was pulled right on I-90E, I had 94 MPH in a zone with 65 MPH restriction. I m subject of 1180D VTL Section.

    I m a Romanian citizen and I have B1/B2 Visa. The police told me that because I m from a foreign country I m lucky and I will not need to make anything.
    Hi provide me the Uniform Traffic Ticket and he said that this is only for USA citizens.

    Can you please tell me if I need to make anything?

    1. The speeding violation will apply to you, irrespective of where you are licensed to drive. You need to at least address, if not contest this ticket to assure your driving privileges are not suspended in NY.

        1. Due to the serious nature of your offense – I strongly suggest you contact us at your earliest possible convenience to discuss your options. You may reach us at 888-434-0406.

  49. Hi. I just got pulled over on Highway 87 near Athens NY. The officer claims that I was speeding 88 instead 65 allowed. I am a very prudent driver and I am sure I drove in this stretch not more than 80. My husband confirms that. I have a clean driving record and I am surprised about this ticket. I am sure that the police has heard this 1000 times. How can I prove my case?

    1. You are facing a 6 point violation that carries fines of approximately $393, along with an assessment fee of $300, and significant insurance implications. Having a clean driving record helps in this jurisdiction. However, that alone will not warrant the dismissal of the charges. Please note – as speeding is a strict liability offense, there are no defenses to the violation itself. There are, however, other methods of handling this ticket to assure you are able to minimize the impact of this violation.

  50. Hi, I got a speeding ticket Upstate NY in Sandokan. The state trooper told me I was doing 70 on a 55mph zone. I was following the car in front of me and didn’t pay attention to how fast I was going. I haven’t had a speeding ticket ever since I got my license 10 years ago. What can this ticket mean in terms of points and fees and what are my options?
    Thank you

    1. This violation is a 4 point ticket that carries a maximum fine of $300, along with court fees of $93, and a significant impact on insurance. You may either plead guilty to the charges, or plead not guilty in order to contest these charges.

  51. Hi,
    I received a speeding ticket for going 80mph in a 45mph zone in NY rock land county and this is my first time getting speeding tickets, so what might be the best solution? Do I need to make a court appearance?

    And I live in NJ..

    1. I recommend you plead not guilty to this ticket. You are facing 8 points in NY, 2 points in NJ, a $693 court fee, a $450 DMV surcharge fee and a significant auto insurance increase. By hiring an attorney, you would not have to appear in court.

  52. got a speeding ticket of 78 in a 55 in east fishkill. this is my first time getting any type of ticket. what kind of fine am i looking at.

    1. This is a 6 point ticket which carries a fine of $393 to the court and a Driver Assessment surcharge fee from the DMV for $300. Therefore, your fines if you plead guilty to this ticket would be $693 plus an increase in your insurance costs.

  53. Hi

    I got a Speeding ticket in Town of Tonawanda, Erie County for driving at 43 mph in 30 mph zone. It is first ticket that I got charged. What will be the points and fine? Should I fight my ticket? Please advise.

    1. This is a 4 point ticket which carries a fine of $393 and can significantly increase your auto insurance rates. Even though this is your first, I definitely recommend you fight this ticket.

  54. Hi guys,

    I got a speeding ticket for going 78 in a 55 in a mph zone, I have a GA State license. Any idea what the penalty and fines will be?

    1. This is a 6 point violation in New York. If you plead guilty, the ticket carries a $393 court fee plus a Driver Assessment surcharge fee from the DMV in the amount of $300. Points will not be imposed in Georgia.

  55. I got pulled over early this morning on County Route 97, Suffolk County, clocking 76 in a 55. Less than a year ago I plead guilty to a speeding ticket on I-95 in Warren County for going 10 over. From that I probably have points on my license. To make matters worse, this morning I also received a summons for not changing my address on my license in time. I am slightly freaking out and am seriously considering fighting but I don’t want to lose because I am afraid I came across as unapologetic to the officer.

    1. Jaimie – While I understand your concern, hiring an attorney will allow us to separate you from the officer – thus allieviating any potential issues regarding the traffic stop itself. I strongly advise against pleading guilty to a 6 point violation, as there will be substantial fines, assessment fees, and insurance implications.

  56. Were from Brooklyn September 2015 we were driving in Fishkill ny..before heading out their our their we had checked all of our head and tale lights and plate lights everything was good…on our way back to brooklyn we were stopped by a patrol and gave us a ticket for the plate light not working we told the officer we had made sure that everything was working before heading out their to Fishkill ny to drop of a friend. But that didn’t matter to him. Also it’s the first time we have ever been pulled over…so when we saw the patrol signiling us we got nervous and quickly pulled over but to our left their was too much fast traffic coming from the right and pulling over to our left just seemed quicker and safer… so we paid the 2 light violation ticket but not the one for changing lanes..we plead not guilty…it’s been a year since and we just received a notice for court concerning all 3 violations… what should we do? Does this make any sense?

    1. Karen – In order to provide further information, I suggest you contact us at 888-434-0406. I would like more information from you so I may view what violations are pending against you with the DMV.

  57. I received a ticket for speed not reasonable & prudent in ny..Are there points attached to this,fines? I plan on pleading not guilty

  58. Hi i got a speeding ticket today at 5:10 am in 5ta avenue in Manhattan. I am from new York. And the police officer told me the post sign is 25mph and i was driving 38mph. I wanna know the consecuences and if i can foght fight to dont get points, thank you

    1. This is a 4 point ticket, which carries a $203 court fee. This ticket can also drastically increase your insurance rates. You do have the option to fight the ticket and look to get this violation dismissed. However, the court is Manhattan does not allow for negotiation, so having an experienced traffic ticket attorney handle your case is best.

  59. Hi I received a speeding violation on the Triboro bridge written by TBTA cop. According to him I was doing 73 in 40 MPh zone. As far as I know they do not use radars and just estimate your speed. Is that true??? And what are my chances here?
    Thanks
    Roman

    1. Roman – Under New York law, Police officers have the authority to issue speeding tickets based on visual observation alone. However, I do recommend you fight this ticket. You are facing an 8 point ticket which puts you close to a license suspension, over $1000 in fines and a significant auto insurance increase.

  60. My husband got a speeding ticket on state route 81 in N.Y. state going 72 in a 55 work zone area. What fine cost and points is he looking at for this ticket. On his ticket it is marked traffic infraction the court is Hasting town court (Oswego) plus his license has two point all ready on it is it in jeopardy from this ticket he got?

    Karen

    1. This ticket carries 4 points and a $693 court fee, as fines become doubled if you are issued a ticket in a work zone. If he has 2 previous points within an 18 month time frame, he will also be subject to a Driver Assessment fee from the NY DMV in the amount of $300. Additionally, this ticket can cause an increase in your insurance premiums over the next few years. I suggest he fight this ticket.

  61. Hi,

    I was coming back from Geneva on I-81 and got pulled over for doing 81 in a 65. I told the cop I was passing two 18 wheelers hence why I was going that fast which he noted. He gave me the ticket and I live in Jersey about 3 and a half hours away. I figured I’d plead guilty and just pay the fine but didn’t realize it would be four points and almost $400 in fines. That’s crazy. It’s also my first speeding ticket and I’ve been driving for 12 years now. What would your suggestion be to do?

    1. Steven – You have the option to plead not guilty to fight this ticket and reduce/eliminate the penalties imposed. By hiring an attorney to handle your case, you would not have to appear in court.

  62. Hi,

    I was driving back from Canada and was trying to pass a car from left lane but did not realize that the speed limit for the construction zone dropped to 55. I was initially issued a VTL 1180f 76/55 ticket and UTT but got reduced to VTL 1180f 70/55 after submitting reduction form to DA. The court is Plattsburgh Town justice court. I hold a NJ DL. What kind of panelty and surcharges I am facing. Thanks .

    1. You were facing a 6 point ticket in NY, 2 points in NJ, $993 in fines and a significant auto insurance increase. The court has offered you a reduction to a 4 point ticket in NY, 2 points in NJ, $693 fine and a lesser impact on insurance. However, you could still see a drastic increase in your insurance rates if you plead guilty to this reduced offer.

  63. Live in SI, NY was driving to Rochester, rec’d ticket in 65 mile zone doing 80 at night where. Very hard to see out there. Never ever in 20+ years driving rec’d a speeding ticket, but rec’d one in Avoca, NY. Not sure what to do as I cannot fight this and drive there 5-6 hours for court, it’s a lot for me.

    1. You may contest your ticket without a personal appearance by hiring an attorney to represent you. We will be able to fight this ticket on your behalf – and aid you in obtaining a reduction of the penalties which include 4 points, and a $393 fine.

  64. Im 20m I have a clean record and I was on my way to pick up gf from jfk and officer pulled me over says I was going 72 in a 50 and I wasn’t looking at my speed because I was keeping pace with other drivers. This is gonna add 6 points to my license. I pleaded not guilty but I dont know what to do. happened on 09/16/16 but my hearing is 07/19/17 why is that? I dont live in queens but I live on long island. should I get a lawyer? Im also a college student would that help my case? When should get a lawyer since the hearing is so far away?
    Violation: 1180-D

    1. Rick – you received your ticket under the jurisdiction of the traffic violation bureau – which generally schedules court dates months after the initial violation. Being a college student, as well as ‘going with the flow of traffic,’ are both not relevant when determining whether you were guilty of speeding in this instance. It is advisable to hire an attorney early into the case for numerous reasons, including – a) assuring that no daedlines are missed, b) providing ample time to research potential defenses, and c) providing ‘peace of mind,’ knowing your ticket will be handled in a professional manner.

  65. Hi. I got speed ticket on 9/30 going Taconic State Pkwy 72 miles on 55 miles zone.
    I was told either plea guilty and return ticket signed or appear t Chatham Town Court on 10/26/16.
    It says 1180b which I believe 300max fine plus court surcharge with 4 points.
    If I get help from Ticket Attorney, will it cost me less than that and get point reduced?

  66. Hi guys,

    I got a speeding ticket for going 96 in a 65 in a “65 mph zone” in New Jersey, but I have a New York State license. Any idea what the penalty and fines will be? This is my first ticket ever, is this worth fighting?

    Thanks,
    Max

    1. Max – This ticket is worth fighting. The ticket carries 5 points in New Jersey and will be communicated to New York where the violation will appear on your record. Your insurance company can then significantly increase your insurance rates.

  67. Hi
    Got a 45 mph on 30 mph speed zone uniform traffic ticket in Orange County,NY. Says it is in violation of NYS V AND T LAW. It was by radar and also got a supporting deposition CPL 710.30(1)(A) notice with it. Cop told me to sign and return. Not sure where i go from here or what will I expect with points and fines. I have an option to send it back and plea guilty or not. But a little confused because it says in the plea of notguilty section that if a supporting deposition was gotten with ticket then not to plea not guilty. Also has in caps on ticket page that “A plea of guilty to this charge is equivalent to a conviction after trial.
    What would be the best way to fight this or pay what I have to just to resolve everything.

    1. John – you are facing a 4 point ticket that carries a fine of $393, along with a substantial impact on insurance. I therefore recommend you contest this ticket to avoid / mitigate the consequences. If you would like clarification on the process of fighting this ticket, you may reach us at 888-434-0406 for a free consultation.

    1. This is a 6 point ticket in New York which gets communicated to New Jersey, where 2 separate points will be imposed. There is a $393 court fee associated with this ticket as well as a $300 Driver Responsibility Assessment surcharge fee from the New York DMV. Pleading guilty to this ticket would also cause an increase in your insurance premiums.

  68. Hello, got pulled over going 43 in a 30. I was wondering what the aprox monetary cost would be and probable points I would incur on my liscence. Thank you

  69. I was given a ticket for 86 mph in a 65 mph zone on I90 E. I am a international traveller from India and do not have a US license. What is the procedure as my matter is scheduled to be handled in Angola court on 10/17/16?

    1. Ritesh – This is a 6 point violation in New York. There is a $393 court fee plus a $300 Driver Responsibility Assessment fee if you plead guilty. By hiring an attorney, you can have these penalties reduced and you would not have to come to court.

  70. Hi,
    This is for my friend who just received a Speeding ticket stating he was on 84 mph while overtaking in a 65 mph zone. I know it’s a 4 point ticket and the driver has an OH license. What could be the possible outcome. My friend stated he went little above but not this high in speed as it’s stated in ticket. After 30 min of getting the ticket, they stopped at a gas station just to see that the Model of the Car and even the Car license number is incorrect.
    What are the possible outcomes of fighting this ticket and how to proceed?

    1. Nishant – the mistake regarding your license number / model will be viewed as clerical in nature, and thus not sufficient to warrant dismissal of your ticket. There are, however, other avenues of fighting a speeding ticket.

  71. I am from Massachusetts, I was cited doing 80 in a 65. They had to mail me my ticket because they were having computer issues and the officer had to change cars. What are the chances that the radar may have not been working as well?

    1. Alan – while it is impossible for us to answer this question, please note – officers may issue speeding tickets without radar evidence.

  72. Help – I just had the exact thing happen yesterday in the same area. I was passing another car in the passing lane and was not aware that the speed limit had dropped from 65 to 55 in that area of the I81 just before the border back to Canada. The ticket says 79 in a 55 zone.

    However the ticket says it was at 5:35 am when it was actually 5:35 pm – how does this affect the violation?

    1. Lilly – typically the time of occurrence plays a significant part, because it is the difference between AM v. PM, it is likely the judge will treat this as a ‘clerical error,’ and thus not sufficient for a dismissal. This does not mean, however, that there are not other methods of fighting your ticket.

  73. I was pulled over going 100 in a 65mph zone early in the morning on I-87 trying to make a job interview. I have a probationary NJ license and this is my first offense. How will this impact me and how long do I have to pay the $600 ticket?

    1. Julia – please be advised of the following: a) You are facing an 8 point violation in NY; b) your license is at risk for suspension due to the nature of this offense and the status of your current license; c) this ticket is $693, along with an additional $450 in assessment fees; d) how long you will be given to pay a ticket is at the discretion of the court. Please contact us with any further questions at 888-434-0406.

  74. I was pulled over saturday in buffalo ny for a speed in zone ticket plus a bunch of other tickets i wasnt even asked about they were just given to ne by the officer but he said i was going 51 in a 30mph speed zone . i only have a permit what should i do? Need answers please

  75. I was stopped on September 9th for driving 61 in a 40 mph speed zone. The speed went from 56 to 55 to 40 in a matter of a kilometre due to approaching the Ivy Lea Bridge Authority.

  76. My boyfriend got pulled over going 88 in a 65. We live in ohio. What affect will this have on his license here? Also the cop told him to pled not guilty and fill out reduction papers. Will this help?

    1. Jeanine – while we can not advise on the point system of Ohio, the violation will transfer and will likely impact your insurance rates.

  77. Hi,
    I received a speeding ticket for going 44mph in a 30mph zone in Buffalo, and this is my first time getting speeding tickets, so what might be the best solution? Do I need to make a court appearance?
    And I just moved to NYS but my driver license still shows my old address, so I don’t know if they’re gonna mail anything to me.

    1. Cassie – I would first contact the court to assure you do not miss any documents sent to you. If you contest this ticket, a personal appearance will likely be required.

  78. I was pulled over and given a ticket today for going 86 in a 55. My first ticket and it given to me on a back road rarely traveled. I’m scared I’m going to get a huge fine and a lot of pints on my license!

Was overtaking a truck and because of the ownhill, the speed increased. This is my first ticket, have clean record in the past and was wondering what to do next?

  81. I received a ticket in the village of Williamsville 46 in a 30. the officer put down an expired registration date, how can I use this in court to my benefit.

    1. Dede – unfortuantely these types of errors are seen as ‘clerical’ and are rarely used to lead toa dimissal of a ticket. There are other avenues of recourse, however.

  82. Hi, I got pulled over yesterday evening in Tully, NY, while traveling from Binghamton, NY to Syracuse NY. I was going 85mph in a 65mph area. I had food poisoning and was trying to get back home and to my doctor right away without any of my symptoms acting up. This is my first offense and I’m not sure if I should plea guilty and suffer the consequences.

    1. Alexis – while sympathetic, that is unfortunately not a defense to speeding, as speeding is a ‘strict liability’ violation. You may still contest your ticket in order to mitigate / avoid the consequences.

  83. Hi , I live in the Uk and was caight speeding recently during a c=vacation. It was the first time I’d driven long distance as I was driving from NJ to Toronto. I gaot caught by a stalker dual radar on 1-81NB supposedly doing 85 in a 65 zone. When I got pulled over and he asked what speed I was doing, I said I didn’t know as I just panicked. I don’t believe I was going that fast, but in any case wanted to know what to do. The speeding fine having looked it up looks like $300. The court I need to fax the response to is Cortlandville County Court. Any suggestions?

    1. Sanjiv – you may contest this ticket by pleading not guilty and bringing your case to trial. If you would like representation, we may handle your case without the need of your physical presence.

  84. Hi. I was on I-87 and passed over a police car with speed 85 mph. The police stopped me and issue ticket for speeding in zone with 55 mph. It was no zone and max speed limit on I-87 is 65 mph. The Police officer told me that I exceed max speed for 20 mph but on ticket put 55 mph for speeding in zone which gives me 30 mph over the limit. Basically he lied to me. What should I do?

  85. Hello, today I was pulled over in speedway for going 80 on 65, If I will pleed guilty, how big my fine will be, also I am leaving States in 2 weeks. Will it be enough to take care of everything?

    1. The maximum penalty for this offense is $393. While jurisdictions vary widely, you may contact the court to attempt to expedite the resolution of your case. Please note – you may contest this ticket even if you leave the state.

  86. Hello Adam,

    I have an Missouri drivers license. I have received a speeding ticket stating riding at 73mph on 55mph zone in New York State. I am not sure how to move on this. I cannot appear for court hearing as i don’t live in NY.

    And also I am not sure how to move on this whether to Plea of Guilty or Non Guilty. I understand It affects with 4 points and $393 fee and Insurance as well.

    Could you please suggest me to contest the ticket to avoid these consequences.

    1. Venkat – hiring an attorney will allow you to contest this ticket without a personal appearance. You may reach us for a free consultation at 888-434-0406.

  87. Tonight my girlfriend was clocked at 80mph in a 65. She did not admit guilt when the office said how fast she was going.In fact very few words were said between the two. He came back from his car and said I wrote you a ticket for going 80 in a 65. This was at night sept 4th. Any advice

    1. Morgan – This is a 4 point ticket which carries a fine of $393 and can cause a spike in her insurance rates. I suggest pleading Not Guilty and fighting the ticket to eliminate/minimize the penalties.

  88. I was driving at night i got pulled over for doing a 45 on a 30 but i was going the speed limit untill i went down a hill .can i get a ticket for going down a hill

    1. Even if you are traveling down a hill, you can still be issued a ticket if you are exceeding the posted speed limit. This is a 4 point ticket which can significantly increase your insurance premiums. However, if you plead not guilty, you do have the opportunity to fight this ticket and get it reduced and/or dismissed.

      1. I have received my court date schedule today 9/19/16 from the mail .It say that my court date was on 9/03/16 how ima go to court if the court date past already and i received the court paper today? Can i call to inform them of the situation? Will they let me reschedule…Im in Batava ,Ny 14020

  89. Driving 84 in a 65 zone, the officer wrote down my German hometown as first name. However the address is the address of the rental company. So the ticket will arrive there and they will charge my credit card, because I rented that car and the last name matches. Should I plead guilty since I am not living here anyway and then pay this fine?

    1. Rem – If you plead guilty, you will be assessed a $300 court fee plus a $93 administrative fee. Although this ticket will not be communicated back to Germany, it would be 4 points on your record in New York. I would consider fighting this ticket.

  90. I was clocked last night at 61 in a 35 mph speed zone, however the police officer wrote the ticket for 61 in a 55 mph zone. I have a clean record, however I need to redo my defensive driving (which expired a few months back). Is it better to just plead guilty, take the 3 points and then redo defensive driving to eliminate them? Or plead non-guilty and fight to have it reduced?

    1. Kerri – are you certain the officer wrote you the ticket for 61/55? I suggest you contact us to discuss further. I would advise you to e-mail us a copy of your ticket so we can be sure of the specific charge against you.

  91. Hi i got a speeding ticket in Albany for going at 90mph on a 65mph limit. This is my first offence. I’m not sure what to plea. Also, i’m not currently living in the US and am leaving in a week. Any advice?

    1. Nicole – I suggest at the very least you answer the ticket to assure there are no outstanding suspensions remaining against you in NY.

  92. Good morning Mr. Rosenblum,

    I was on the LIE going 60mph which is marked as 55mph on the highway. My pregnant fiancée started cramping and needed to use the restroom. There was a bit of traffic in front of me and saw that it was a clear road ahead with the next exit being a mile away. I overpassed the cars in front of me and accelerated to 85pmh and then reduced back my speed. Unfortunately the cop pinged me using LiDar at 85. Though I did explain the situation of why I was going fast, I have a summon to go to court for speeding 20 miles over the speed limit. Any advise is appreciated. Thanks

    1. Keith – I suggest you contest this ticket to avoid the points & insurance implications. While sympathetic, your situation is not a defense for speeding. Thus, the approach to handling your case must be done through cross examination of the officers testimony, rather than an emphasis on your reasons for speeding.

  93. My husband got a speeding ticket on November 22,2015. He is out of the state right now and I wasn’t aware of his hearings. I received a letter saying that his license will be suspended 9/12/16 failure to answer ticket. I want to know if I can pay the $40 cash bond and have an attorney represent him?

    1. Rosanna – I suggest you contact us to discuss further as I would like to clarify some facts about your husband’s case.

  94. I received a speeding ticket in a school zone and I went to trial. I was offered a reduced violation but didn’t accept it. Hence going to trial. Well, I wasn’t adequately prepare since I didn’t really know what to expect other than what little info I found on line. Needless to say, I lost and have 6 points and a driver assessment fee as well. I can’t afford either. Can I write to the judge and ask to do community service? Can taking a defensive driver course get the assessment fee waived. I was charged with disobeying a traffic device (rolled through a stop sign about a year or two ago.)
    The sign for the school didn’t allow enough time to reduce speed in a reasonable amount of time. It was nearly on top of the school. In court, the officer stated the hours were 7am-7pm but the sign says 7-6pm. The school that is located 1 mile in another direction has a sign that says, school zone speed limit 15 mph. NO posted times and again this sign is posted when you are at the perimeter of the school property. No time to reduce from 30-35 to 15 without slamming on your brakes. There are also a number of other local schools in close proximity from my residence and again no times posted, signage without ample distance to reduce speed. There is no consistency at all. If a driver doesn’t frequently travel the route where the sign is posted with the times they would not be aware of the times especially when the driver travels past a couple of schools along their daily route and those do not have times posted. Any assistance would be helpful. I’m on disability so between the fine and driver assessment fees they are equivalent to an entire month of my benefit amount. That being $1047.00 month.

    1. Edmund – while you may contact the court in an attempt to obtain a sort of payment plan, the legal arguments you present will unfortunately not be relevant at this juncture. The defensive driving court will not remove any assessment fees.

  95. Hi i was pulled over for speeding in Yonkers last month. The cop initially said it was 55 in a 40, however on the ticket it looks like he drew a zero over the 5 and put a dash through it. The ticket is very confusing, and looks more to be a 50 in a 40 than a 55 in a 40. Should I contest this ticket and will the typographical error help me in this case?

  96. Hi,
    I am a NJ driver got a NY speeding ticket for driving 91 in a 65 MPH Zone on Liberty, NY 12754, Sullivan County, section 1180D. This is my first ticket so far, is there any way to have no points added? Or reduced fine/points added? Do I need a lawyer? What should I plead?

    1. Ravi – I suggest you plead not-guilty and contest this 6 point ticket. 2 points transfer to NJ, and this will likely impact your insurance rates. You may contact us for a free consultation to discuss your options at 888-434-0406.

  97. I received a speeding ticket fro going 78mph in 55mph zone. The policeman pulled over 4 other cars at the same time. When he asked me what i thought I said i thought the speed limit was 60-65 and that I was not beyond 70. I am from Canada.
    Is there a way to reduce the ticket and a way to avoid the DRA if I plead guilty to up to 70mph?

    is this an option that is available?

    1. In order to provide information, we need to know what court will be handling this case. Generally speaking, this is a 6 point violation that will transfer pooints to certain provinces in Canada. Since you are looking at a 6 point ticket, the DRA will apply.

  98. Hi!
    Got clocked in Orange county on I-87 with 87m/h on a zone of 65m/h.
    Already have 7 points from previous cases (not speeding) and have to pay DRA fee.
    Of the 7 points 5 are due this October because of the 18 months passing, however I have to answer this actual speeding ticket by September.
    What are my chances here? Will I be able to fight this ticket or I have to face the maximum charges?
    Will I have to pay an other DRA fee, or I have a chance with the point reduction safety class?
    Thank you!

    1. Attila – please contact us to clarify the dates of the violations. Generally speaking, it is difficult to know what result will occur without knowing more details about the actual traffic stop.

  99. Speeding ticket in NJ vacation town. 60 in a 45 after 11 at night. Bottom of mile long hill coming over a major bridge where apparently the speed changes coming from major city into small community. Very young cop, very nervous for some reason. Cannot read 90% of the ticket. Clean NY license, no tickets. How do I avoid points and NY DMV notice?

  100. I got a ticket for 108 in a 65. I’m a PA resident, clean driving record. What kind of fines, suspensions, and point transfers am I going to be looking forward to?

    1. You are facing an 11 point violation which will result in the suspension of your driving privileges if convicted. This suspension will unfortunately transfer to PA. I strongly suggest you contact us at 888-434-0406 to discuss your case in further detail.

I was told I was doing 50mph in a 30mph zone, I was driving with my older brother as I have a permit, and he has a license of course, and we were practicing around the neighborhood… I wasn’t as mindful as I should’ve been, huge mistake. What will happen? What should I do?

  104. My daughter got a ticket in Roscoe,NY on 8/1/16. The officer said she was going 85 in a 65pmh zone. She usually doesn’t drive that fast. He then said he hates the Patriots abd was giving her a ticket fir the sticker in her rear window. It is on the drivers side directly in line with the headrest and it is see thru. She spent over an 1.5 hrs at a hyuandai dealership the next day having them authorize the sticker ticket & they never has seen a ticket like that in 30 years. She is 20 years old. This is her first ticket & she did take defensive driving in July of 2014 before she got her drivers liscence on 8/3/2014. What will be the ramifications for her? She starts school the week of the court appearance and it is now over 48 hrs to claim not quilty.

  105. I got pulled over for driving 73mph instead of 55. I’m a tourist from germany and not familiar with how things work here regarding the process around a speeding ticket. What can I do?

  108. I received a ticket for going 67 in a 40. I did not know it was 40 MPH. I have lived here all my life and though it was 55. I could not find where it was posted as 40, and felt coerced by the officer to mail in a guilty plea ASAP. Reglardless, I never received a ticket for anything in my 25 years of driving. I have no idea what to do next. The ticket is very confusing to figure out. It has an In-person date and time for an appearance, but also has a request for a deposition in the “not guilty” section that says I will receive a court date in the mail. What should I do?

    1. Jen – This 6 point ticket entails fines of $393, assessment fees of $300, and substantial insurance implications. Unforatuntely, confusion about the speed limit is not a defense to speeding. However, your clean driving record will play an integral role should you choose to fight your ticket. You may reach us at 888-434-0406 for a free consultation to discuss your options in further detail.

  109. Received a moving violation for going 82 in a 65 in wallkill ny on rt 84. What will the finest be for this? Do I plead not guilty?

  110. I was charged for over speeding on I-81 as the radar caught me driving at 98 mph on a 65 mph. The officer asked me if I knew why he had stopped me, and I said for over speeding. However since I was absolutely positive that I was at a 80, I said the same when he asked me at what speed was I driving. I previously have 3 points on my record. The case being handled by the Corlandville town court, NY. I was also provided with a supporting deposition speeding (Gen101) by the officer.
    Could you suggest me what’s my best alternative?

    1. Aditya – I strongly suggest you contest this 8 point violation, as a conviction will lead to license suspension, along with substantial fines, and a significant impact to your insurance rates.

  114. Hi there –
    I received a NYS ticket for going over the speed limit a few weeks ago. I paid it promptly. I don’t remember how much over I was going, but it amounted to 6 points. I do not have a NYS license, I have a Rhode Island license. I got a letter recently saying that my NYS license will be suspended come August for failure to pay the drivers responsibility assessment. This fee is $100 annually for 3 years or $300 in full. My questions:
    1. Will this affect my RI license or ability to obtain a different state’s license in the future? (driving record, points, etc)
    2. Will this affect my insurance?
    3. Do I have to pay this even if I don’t intend to ever drive in NYS again?

    Thanks for your help –

    1. Keri – 1. Yes, the violation will transfer over thus impacting insurance rates and potentially the points in your home state. 2. This will impact insurance rates. 3. If you do not pay this violation, your license will be suspended in NY. Suspensions transfer between the states – thus – your RI license will be suspended as well.

  115. I received a ticket in staten island ny for disobeying a traffic control device. i am a female and the cop put male in the section of gender. is this reason for dismissal? or should i just save myself the aggravation and penalties if found guilty and pay the stupid ticket?

    1. Lauren – this will not likely result in a dismissal of the ticket, as it will be seen as a clerical error. It is still possible to contest this ticket on other grounds however, and we would be happy to discuss it with you in further detail.

  116. Hi,

I was driving my mom’s truck with her as the passenger. The trooper that pulled me over, clocked me at going 80mph in a 65mph on Interstate 86 East. My court appearance is on August 11th at North Harmony Town Court. I know its 4 points on my license and a max $300 fine. What would my best option be to deal with this ticket?

    1. I suggest you contest this ticket to avoid the points, fines, and insurance impact. By using an attorney, you will be able to contest this ticket without personally appearing at the court hearing.

  120. hi i got a ticket today the code for the ticket is “1180d speeding in zone”
    i was caught off guard by lights behind me and the radar showed me at 46 mph in a 30mph zone and i was going fast only cause i thought he wanted me out of his way so i pulled over to let him pass and he stops behind me too and gets out and i get a ticket

    whats the best thing for me to do?
    i want to fight it

    1. Luis – you are facing a 4 point ticket with approximately $400 in fines, along with a steep increase in insurance rates. I suggest you fight this ticket to mitigate the consequences.

  121. Got a ticket doing 70 in a 55 on 587. Officer said if I come to court he will reduce to a non moving violation. What is the cost/point difference in these charges.
    Kingston Court

    1. Danjr – 15 mph over the limit is a 4 point ticket. The fine ranges based on the location of the incident. Generally speaking, the maximum penalty for this violation is $393, along with a significant impact to your insurance rates. Non-moving violation fines vary widely, but generally have less of an impact on insurance.

  122. Hi Adam,
    I got a ticket for driving 86mph at a 65mph zone, going north on I87 at Lake George.
    I was with my family in the car so even if I was going faster than 65mph I am almost sure I wasn’t going 86mph.
    I wasn’t looking at my speed when the officer pulled me over but he told me I was going 82mph then I slowed down and then I accelerated again, which was probably when I was passing a car.
    I am not sure about my speed, which makes it hard for me to decide if I should fight it or not.
    Do you think I should fight this ticket? do I have a case here?

    1. Speeding is a strict liability offense – meaning there are no legal defenses. However, the officer must prove that you were in fact speeding. Since this is a 6 point ticket that has significant fines and penalties, I suggest you contest this matter.

  123. Hi, I’m 17 and got a ticket for doing 60 in a 35. What are the chances I can get it dismissed or reduced below 3 points so my liscense is not suspended? Thanks.

  128. Hi Adam,
    I got a 1180D for driving at 85( as per the cop, i may be off by a few miles, but not 85 for sure) in a 65 zone on I-90. The deposition details “Stationary Front radar at mpm 157, visual estimate 85mph. Radar digital display confirms 85 mph in a clearly posted 65 mph zone”. I live in and hold a Rhode Island license, but the ticket is to be handled at Rotterdam city in Schenectady County. I know it’s 4 points on my record and a max of $393 fine. I have following questions.
    1. Will it increase my insurance?
    2. Plead guilty or not-guilty.
    3. If i plead not-guilty what are the chances of reducing the ticket to a substantially lower amount and to 0 points.
    4. Does your firm provide representation at the Rotterdam town, so that i don’t have to travel and waste time?

    1. Manas – 1) This violation will likely increase your insurance rates, 2) I suggest you plead not guilty; 3) We can not speak for what your chances are here – as we need more information about your ticket and driving history; 4) We regularly appear in this court.

  129. Hello, I have just received my lisence probably 2 months ago. About two days ago, I was caught speeding doing 40 on a 30 speed zone. I was driving 38 in what I thought was a 35 speed zone since I was unfamiliar with the area but I guess I was wrong. Now I have a summons. What charges am I probably facing if I plead guilty?

  130. Hi, I was coming from Williamsport Pa. And I was puller over by a North Danesville police officer. I slowed down before I passed him. He said I was going 81 in a 65 speed zone. But before he pulled me over he stated he followed me over two miles after I slowed down. How much would my ticket be if I plead guilty? Also I have a Florida’s license.

    1. This ticket is 4 points and has a fine of $300 plus a $93 administrative fee. If you plead guilty to this ticket, it will appear on your record in Florida and can negatively impact your insurance rates over the next 3-4 years.

  131. I received a speeding ticket near Covington NY on our way to Montreal. I have a clean NJ drivers license and the NY State trooper was parked in the trees off the highway at the bottom of a steep decline. He told me that I was doing 84 in a 65 and I disagree. Looks like it will be a 4 point ticket and God only knows how much it will cost. ! He listed 85 in 65 on the ticket too after saying 84, not that it matters.

    I thought it was unfair for the officer to ticket the speed so high with such a steep decline, not to mention the fact that I have 3 family members on the NJ police force. (which I did not mention).
    I was driving with cruise control for the entire 5 hour drive and there was a fully loaded logging truck pulling onto the empty highway, so I pulled into the left lane to give him clearance and must have tapped my brakes before doing so, which would have stopped the cruise control.
    Very frustrating and frankly upset with the NY state trooper for the severity and lack of any leniency, especially with our 7 year old being polite in the back seat and my wife and I being polite as well.
    Anyway, Please advise and since it is so far for me to appear in court it may be something that I would really like to have you handle.
    Regards,
    Les

  137. Hello, I was going 105 in a 65 (yikes i know, I really don’t think i was going past 90, but thats what he said).
    This was in seneca, NY. The court is junius court. I don’t have money for a lawyer. I am okay with losing my licence but I would still like to fight it to get the lowest possible charges. What do you advise?

    I also got an obstruction of view ticket and a not using my blinker ticket (i definately did use my blinker though)

  138. Adam, what do you think? Caught doing 80 in a 65 on State Rte 17 in Wurtsboro.

  139. I’m a PA resident and while visiting NY on June 11th, I received a speeding ticket on I-86 (Cattaraugus County) for doing 90 in a 65. As far as I am aware, I have no points in PA, and I definitely have no points in NY. As this is my first speeding ticket in NY, what kinds of fines am I looking at, and which would be cheaper, paying the fine, or enlisting your services? I have never had a speeding ticket in NY previously. My last speeding ticket in PA was back in 2014.

  140. Hi,

    This morning I was given a ticket at 7:27am on the Southern State Parkway in Nassau county. I was going with the flow of traffic, but the ticket states the charge was based on Officer’s direct observation and verified by his radar. He clocked me at 76/55 (1 mph enough to bump me into another NY ticket class). I live in Utah and was visiting.
    Can you tell me:
    1) the likely ticket costs associated with it?
    2) if and how the points will transfer to Utah?
    3) should I contest?
    4) my license plate on the rental car was a Mississippi plate. In your experience, our officers likely to pull over an out of state car as they are less likely to contest?

    1. Chris: 1) The ticket will cost $393 + $300 assessment fees. 2) We are not licensed in UT, and thus can not advise you on how many points, if any, transfer. 3) I suggest you contest this matter to mitigate the fines and insurance impact. 4) While that is very possible, it is also not illegal.

  141. Hi. I received a speeding ticket for going 74 in a 50 in Staten Island. On the ticket it says it’s 1180d and it says 74 in a 50, but when I pleaded Not Guilty online it says the ticket was for 31+ over the speed limit and carries 11 points. Shouldn’t it be 11-30 and have less points? Who made this error? Can I use this to get the ticket dismissed? Thank you.

  142. I received a speeding ticket for going 74 in a 65. I was travelling in NY state just passed the PA line into New York. It was Chatauqua county Town of Portland.

  143. I posted a question yesterday. It was in moderation, but it seems to be gone? Cortland County, Marathon got speeding ticket for 75 in a 65 on I-81, deposition states “PASSING LANE, ACTUAL 93/65”. Not sure how this type of situation will be handled in terms of points/fees, as ticket itself says defendant speed: 75 in 65 mph zone. I have a clean record.

  144. I received a ticket while driving from NYC to Montreal. I am Mexican, I live in Mexico, the car was rental, I was passing a huge line of cars and the officer said I went at 91 MPH in a 65 limit. What are my options? I won’t need to rent a car again but I want to know if I will be in trouble whenever I enter the US again. I come very often. Thanks!

  145. Hi,

  146. I was clocked at 60mph in 25mph school zone I am 17 and this is my first ticket in Westchester NY. Not sure what to do

    1. You are facing an 8 point ticket that will result in a significant amount of penalities, assessment fees, insurance impacts, and potential suspensions. I strongly suggest you contact us for a free consultation to discuss this in further detail.
